Hello Alan,
I find the 1841 census difficult to read also. To the best of my ability I have copied the Moorhouse entries and indexed them. Posted it here to assist other researchers. Thought you might like a copy.
I have 1851 for same area also ready to send. And am currently preparing 1861 or at least what I have of it on hand. Just say the word and I'll get them onto the forum page too. Cheers Mark
